Beginning Friday, August 11, 2017, visitors to Submishmash.com will be automatically redirected to the Discover feature, a creative opportunities marketplace that connects submitters with organizations’ calls for submissions. Discover is available right in your Submittable account, enabling submitters to search, track, and submit to creative opportunities.

With Discover, you can find even more opportunities by searching thousands of creative calls using over 150 search terms. You can filter by deadlines and find ongoing opportunities. Save your favorite calls and follow specific organizations. It’s free to use Discover, and you can start using it now.

I’m a user of Submishmash.com. What do I need to do?

To find submission opportunities, simply use the same login email and password you utilized for Submishmash (and Submittable) to sign in to Discover.

If you have any saved lists in Submishmash.com, please note that these lists will not be transferable to Discover. However, the organizations in your saved lists will be automatically added to the Following section of your Discover account after August 11, so that you can continue to follow their calls for submission.

Note that this change only affects Submishmash.com and NOT the Submishmash Weekly newsletter, our weekly email newsletter of hand-picked calls for writers, artists, and filmmakers.

 

My organization currently appears on Submishmash.com. What do we need to do?

Our Discover team has been busy making sure organizations that appear on Submishmash.com also have their submission categories included in Discover. To appear in Discover, you’ll need to add a tag, or search term, for your submission category. If you’d like to check that your organization’s submission categories are in Discover, follow these steps:

1. Sign in to your Submittable account.

2. Go to your organization’s Categories page.

3. Click the submission category you’d like to include in Discover.

4. On the General Settings tab, check that you have at least one tag added in the Join Discover dropdown menu. Edit or add more tags as needed.

5. Click Save Category.  When your category is live, it will appear in Discover.

Users that saved your organization to a list in Submishmash will automatically follow your organization in Discover. This means you may see an increase in the number of followers for your organization. To see your Followers report, go to More > Reports > Followers.

 

Start using Discover now and stay tuned for exciting new features en route. For more information, see our help article.

  • Nice that you are consolidating the sites. One Submittable feature I really crave is the ability to search for publications and organizations by name. Quite often I come across a market that interests me (say in Duotrope, where they are all laid out and easily searchable) only to get frustrated when I cannot find it in Submittable–even when the market *uses* Submittable and the deadline is given in Duotrope. Things seem to fall through the cracks. I hope you can address this.

      Hi, Geoff,

      Thanks for checking in. We actually did release the ability to search for organizations by name in Discover earlier this summer. To search by name, you can just type the organization or publication name into the search box and press ‘Enter.’ If the organization has a live category it has chosen to include in Discover, you’ll see it there. We’ll make this more clear in our help documentation, too. Let us know if you have any other questions.

      Thanks,
      Asta

      • Thanks so much! I tried it and it seems to work very well. Congratulations to your staff for providing this sorely-needed feature. I love Submittable now more than ever!
